The coordinators of Homecoming are comprised of the High School Student Council advised by Jaime Banks and Kim Syverson. Homecoming is a time for students to enjoy different and fun activities, work with their classmates in various competitions and support the Mt. Lake athletic teams and organizations. “Dress-Up Days” for Homecoming Week (Sept. 28 through Oct. 2) will feature: Monday (Sleeping Beauty, wear pajamas), Tuesday (Little Mermaid, appropriate beachwear), Wednesday (Monster U, college apparel), Thursday (Beauty and the Beast, dress up or down) and Friday (Wolverine Spirit Day). “Planning all of the activities takes a lot of time, and since Jaime and I teach during the day, we often put in long hours to make sure Homecoming comes together. Most of the student council members are also involved in a variety of activities as well, so finding time to make it all happen is the biggest challenge of planning Homecoming,” said Kim Syverson. There will also be a few Class of the Year activities for the students during the week as well as a pep fest Oct. 2 at 2:45 p.m. in the gym for high school students. New activities added to the week this year include a one- and three-mile color run ($30 per person) and hot dog meal ($5 per meal) on Sunday. Registration begins at 3 p.m. and the fun walk/ run starts at 4 p.m. The Homecoming football game will be held Oct. 2 at Munson Field against Cleveland. A dance for ninththrough 12th-graders will be held in the school cafeteria after the game. Mt. Lake Christian and Mt. Lake Public students can attend. Songs will be a playlist chosen by the student council members.
